Heidi‘s new monthly radio show on BBC Radio One aired for the second time earlier this week and was, much to my disappointment, undeniably good. Never been much of fan of hers but her 3am Friday night selection seems to have been right on point. Bumping house and jackin’ techno all the way with a guest mini-mix and interview from Mr Claude Von Stroke the show is certainly worth a listen. Proceedings really get interesting when she drops a track by, man-of-the-moment, Seth Troxler that features a super-camp recital of Maya Angelou‘s poem “Phenomenal Woman”.

DJ Ata, co-founder of Playhouse, Klang and Ongaku and all-round super old-timer, treated the Waterfloor at Watergate to a few hours of musical bliss last Saturday at the Perlon Party with Villalobos. Switching effortlessly between electro, house, old-skool, disco he showed us why it’s only the eclectic DJs that survive the fads. Thanking him and Zip, who also smashed that night in a very different stlye, for still playing songs with words and making stuff all the better for it!

Dug up a few tunes off a recent mix CD for Groove Ata put together:

Gary (Tiga’s Italia Mix) – Alter Ego
